Legends of Steam Gala on the East Lancashire Rwy in England today
Author: RailRyder

  • Here are two video clips of big steam on the East Lancashire Railway, near Manchester, England on a cold and rainy day today as part of their "Legends of Steam" gala.
  •  
  • LNER, A4, 60007 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ – This engine emerged from Doncaster Works of the London and North Eastern Railway in early 1936 and bears the distinction of being the 100th locomotive built to the designs of the LNER’s Chief Mechanical Engineer, Sir Nigel Gresley.
  • LMS, Jubilee Class, 45690 ‘Leander’ – Built the same year as 60007 at Crewe, Leander was named for a Navy Ship which was in turn named after a hero of ancient Greek mythology. It originally started life under the number 5690, but was renumbered 45690 when the railways were nationalised.

    6 ft, 8 in on the A4 Pacific in the first clip, and one inch more on the Jubilee-class 4-6-0 in the second.
